- Apply sun screen carefully and generously. Re-apply after swimming.
- Apply sun protection even whilst in the shade; you are still exposed to 40% of the sun's UV radiation.
- At the start of the summer, choose a moderate to high factor (SPF 20 and up), and only stay out in the sun for short periods so as to acclimatize your skin gradually.
- For the best protection under make-up, use Anti-Aging Sun Screen SPF15 Face for two in one moisturization and sun care. Use a small amount and allow a few minutes for the light fluid to absorb before applying make-up.
- Take particular care of babies and children in the sun, and always ensure they are wearing clothing and a hat for extra protection. Pediatricians recommend babies under 6 months stay in the shade and receive minimal exposure to direct sunlight.
- Sunlight is strongest between 11 am and 3 pm. Avoid direct sun exposure at these times.
- When traveling, remember: if you are bound for snow or water, they reflect sunlight, intensifying its UV rays, so you will need to choose a higher sun protection factor - SPF 20 and up. Near the equator and in mountainous areas, the sun's rays are also more intense, so again, use SPF 20 and up.
- Swimming and sweating will remove sun screen, always re-apply after exercise.
- After sunbathing, treat skin to a generous application of After Sun Lotion. With organic Jojoba and vitamin E, it works to re-nourish and nurture sun sore skin.
SAFETY NOTE: Natural, mineral based sunscreens are especially important for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Studies have shown that the chemicals in synthetic sun screens can accumulate in the body, and can mimic the effects of estrogen. They have even been found in breast milk.
